Skip to comments.The Only Job Ex-Journalist Jay Carney Can Get is at MSNBC

Jay Carney used to be the Washington Bureau Chief for Newsweek. He worked for Time reporting on Moscow. And if these reports are correct, then after spending years flacking for Obama, the only gig this former “journalists” could get was at MSNBC.
How pathetic and predictable.
Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC.
Carney is in talks for a contributor position.
If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.
Except those people weren’t career journalists. Carney was.

such a pathetic excuse for anything
He proved to be a loyal commissar that lied and confabulated on a daily basis. His vile legacy is secure. Whatever he does in the future can never change history.
It’s a match made in Heaven: Carney and MSNBC.
And so begins his short and rapid slide into obscurity. Like most MSNBC “contributors”, he’ll be reduced to an incoherent public-access cable show soon enough.
No more fancy (and heavily-photoshopped) luxury house. He’ll have to auction his jumbo-sized Jenga set on eBay.
The Carney and Sharpton Show..now there’s an inspiring concept,
Isn’t he going to write a book? I just assumed he would write a book about his time at the White House. And make money just as Hillary hoped to make tons of money from her book.
He can be Mr. Mom and let mom bring in the big bucks.
How do MSNBC shows stay on the air? MSNBC consistently has far lower ratings than either CNN or Fox News, or any other cable news outlets. So their ad revenues have to be in the toilet. How does the NBC parent company make any money from that channel? Or does the NBC parent company want to prove they are liberal, and subsidize this channel with profits from other subsidiary companies???
Axelrod and Gibbs got contributor gigs at MSNBC, but they aren’t on the air that much lately. Axelrod has his job at the University of Chicago and is probably lining up new Political Clients. Gibbs may have “broke his pick” with NBC because of some pretty harsh criticisms of some Obama policies. Don’t know if anybody will take Carney seriously in the future.
SO nothing has changed. He is still spokesman for the President.
Comcast/NBC/Universal/Time-Warner will hire any radical POS the cat drags across the threshold...
MSNBC is the black and queer channel
Kim Jong Un isn’t hiring?
In the future? That's why he's unemployed and unemployable NOW - he has no credibility left.
If MSNBC is looking for a proven liar, I suggest Jon Lovitz or maybe Joe Isuzu...
